- Freedom From Tyranny of the Urgent
by Charles E. Hummel
Written by the author of the booklet Tyranny of the Urgent, this book deals with time management from a Christian point of view. Now, I must say that I have this "thing" about time management books. I enjoy reading them - for fun! I know; I spend time reading to learn how to better spend my time... quite a paradox, right? Well, that's ok - I enjoy time management books anyway! However - if you read enough time management books, you realize they are often the same ideas simply restated in different terms (by a different author than the last book you read).
This book isn't like that. The ideas and examples in this book were new to me and caused me to sit back and reflect upon my life, and even make some changes.
